WordPress

Why choose self-hosted WordPress?

I’ve used pretty much every big name CMS there is! From Greymatter to MovableType to ExpressionEngine… I’ve finally settled on WordPress because of the following:

  • open-source
  • constantly updated by a large and active community
  • the code is easy to read and understand
  • a plugin for anything you aren’t able to code yourself

And that’s just a few reasons!

Design

Which design are you most proud of?

I don’t have a single design over the years that I think was THE BEST. I generally always prefer my Autumn designs though.

Photography

How did you get started / interested in photography?

I became interested at a fairly young age with a Kodak 110 film camera. I took it everywhere with me! Once I became a pre-teen I upgraded to a basic 35mm film camera and again, took it everywhere with me. I only wish I still had the photos.

I think I just really want to capture a moment… freeze time.

I became more serious about it after digital cameras came out because it simply was more affordable and gave me instant gratification!

What inspires your photography?

OH color and textures. I think it’s why I’m drawn to macro so much because I love seeing that finer detail like the edges of an Autumn leaf or a droplet on a blade of grass. I also vastly prefer to shoot in late afternoon light.

Personal

How many cats is too many?

When you can’t afford to properly feed them or afford an emergency vet visit. If you are unable to take care of their needs (clean fresh litter, fresh water, food daily, etc).

What happened to Pagan@OSN?

Ahh the glory days! Really I think I just got frustrated with the ebb and flow of it. It would be super mega busy one year and the next… dead for 12 straight months. I also got overwhelmed by keeping it fresh and updated with all of the various projects.

What is your favorite flavor of Eegee’s?

Strawberry!

Is there a website or a book you would recommend for someone interested in Paganism?

Hmm. Good question! I’ve always liked Ellen Dugan’s books. For a website, PaganWiccan.about.com is… ok enough. There really isn’t any sites out there that I just love an adore. But for general basics, it’s fine.

Why are you so awesome?

It’s my inner chola… (here’s a fun link: how to look like a chola)

Where does your passion for cooking come from?

100% my grandmother. We lived with her for many years and not only did she cook amazing meals from scratch almost every night but taught me how to cook as well. I can do pretty much anything although I do lean towards German, Italian, and Mexican cuisines.

My heritage is 1/4 German, 1/4 Italian, 1/4 Irish, and 1/4 French Canadian. The Mexican cuisine stems from my upbringing in Tucson, Arizona.

I really developed a passion for great fresh ingredients and to this day I’d much rather source our food from local farms and farmer’s markets than the grocery store.
